Who We Are

By God’s grace, we provide immediate and long-term resources to neighbors in need.

GraceWorks Ministries, Inc. was founded in 1995, when area concerned citizens and faith leaders came together and decided Williamson County needed a central place to send people who needed help with food, clothing and financial assistance. By pooling church resources with private and public sectors, GraceWorks was able to provide more help for many needs to better serve our community, rather than duplicating efforts.

Today, GraceWorks has expanded upon these relationships to establish a referral network with other agencies to provide help for immediate needs and long-term resources. GraceWorks has four program areas that make up the acronym F.I.S.H. — family support, instructional programsseasonal needs and hunger prevention. Through its many services, GraceWorks fulfilled 46,665 needs valued at $5.2 million in 2016.

We are a United Way of Williamson County agency and a member of Community Foundation of Middle TN, Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle TN, Williamson County Chamber of Commerce, and the Center for Nonprofit Management.

GraceWorks Ministries has received a four-star rating from Charity Navigator, the most-utilized charity evaluator in America. We have also earned the 2017 Platinum Seal of Transparency from GuideStar who provides information on 2.5 million nonprofit organizations. Both of these ratings are the highest awarded.

“I just wanted to thank you for making sure I got the help I needed. I know that God was at work and brought us together.”
